SHORTAGE OF DRUGS A MYTH-AMB MUKWITA
Written by MillenniumEditor2 on August 9, 2021
Zambia’s Ambassador to Germany Anthony Mukwita has dismissed assertions that health facilities in the country do not have essential medicines.
AmbMukwita says the shortage of drugs is a myth as the ministry of health has stated that there is no shortage of drugs such as ARVs and other lifesaving drugs.
Speaking on millennium radio during a special paid for program, Mr Mukwita says lifesaving drugs are always available in facilities.
And AmbMukwita says the health posts constructed under the PF led government have led to reduced statistics in mortality rates, especially maternal deaths.
AmbMukwita says women are no longer dying while going to the health facility to give birth, because the facilities have been brought closer to them.
